Derby manager Frank Lampard charged by FA after sending off

Derby manager Frank Lampard has been charged with improper conduct by the Football Association following his sending off during the 1-0 defeat to Rotherham on Saturday.

Lampard reacted angrily at the referee’s failure to award his side a penalty, while Rotherham were awarded one which ultimately led to the game’s only goal.

“If it is [a red card] once I stepped out of the technical area, then their manager should have been sent off, and their assistant, my assistant, and all of us, because we all did during the game,” Lampard said after the match. “I didn’t get a word from the ref.

“I need to go back to the rulebook myself because I do not want to be leaving the game.

“I was upset with a handball. If those are the rules, managers will get sent off every game. I like communication with officials but there was none of that. It wasn’t a penalty. They got a soft one but we didn’t get one.”

Lampard has until 6pm on Thursday, Sept. 20 to appeal.

Their third defeat of the season saw Derby drop to seventh on goal difference.
